Universal Studios Singapore has introduced the very first Transformers attraction in any theme park anywhere.
Making a special guest appearance at the opening was franchise director Michael Bay, who didn’t refute the idea of a fourth movie. In a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, Bay made his entrance in the car featured in the movies.
Transformers The Ride finally opened, after close to spending four years in the making with the main attractions, unquestionably Bumblebee and Optimus Prime.
The ride should enable the greatest 3-D battle yet between the Decepticons and the Autobots with stunning effects produced by Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light & Magic.
He feels that it wasn’t altogether different from directing a movie, just with the added element of a ride.
“I tried to help them sculpt the story and figure out what type of shots we’d like to do, what type of characters we can use. They also had some great ideas…..on how the simulators work, how it mixed with the photography and the shots that we need.”
The ride will see fans whizzing through cityscapes, tunnels, and across rooftops, all whilst seated in a brand-new Autobot by the name of EVAC.
Universal is expected to see its highest attendance this month thanks to the opening of the ride. It will open in Universal studios Hollywood in May 2012.
Bay didn’t rule out the possibility of standing behind the camera for a further movie in the franchise saying that if it was to go ahead, fans would see the very latest in cinema technology.
